    Rube's new head-cam project

    As you might now, we manly latinos don't use helmets and think helmets are for wussies. That would be fact #1. Fact #2 would be the well known rule that once a helmet is cracked, trow it away and get a new one. But hey, hear me out... if I normally don't use a helmet anyway, driving around with a RUbeModified helmet should be OK, right?

    And why I wanna break a perfectly good helmet? Well, it's just a 3 years old x-mart helmet, $10 bucks ones. Is not much of a loss. I always wanted to take ride videos but I feel ridiculous with a camera attached to my helmet. I tried the handlebars but video comes out way to shaky. So... <drum-roll> I wanna dremel the helmet and place the cam *inside* in a semi-concealed way.

    What do you think? Go or no go?

    You do not even ride a bike, so what sort of helmet are you talking about?

    You know what you just made me google right? And probably you knew that because I'm single, the web browser safety was off. Well played
